I found the technology of making jack-pins in the report of Uriy Kimborovich (bim), that he used for his schooner “Izmail”, for what I’m very grateful to him. I made a simple device out of the materials I had.
Material - pear tree. Firstly I prepared the bars of the desired diameter, and so as not to waste too much material (for the support fixture in the collet) I was carving from a long rod, as the length of the coordinate table would allow me.
Fabulous work !I think the carvings look better in Pear than they would have done in boxwood simply because there aren't many so boxwood may have looked odd.The colours and tones of the wood look amazing especially in the sunshine.
Both versions of the Galley Stove are looking good - but you are right, the revised version has more sharp edges on top, so it is looking more authentic.
And I fully underline the words by Nigel !!
